This is my take of a different type of mandazi or donuts with a recipe that’s simmilar to a cake recipe hence the name cake mandazi. I’ve used mandazi flour but you can replace it with self raising flour if not available.
2 large eggs, room temperature
140 grams white sugar
390 grams mandazi flour
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg/lemon zest(optional)
3 tablespoons (40 grams) margarine, melted and cooled to lukewarm
120 ml milk, room temperature
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl and make a well at the centre of the flour.
Add the eggs, melted margarine and milk and whisk for about 1 minute.
Pour the liquid at the centre of the bowl with flour and mix to form a dough.
When done the dough will be soft and sticky so place it in the fridge for about 30 min to make the dough easier to work with.
After cooling the dough, place it on a work surface dusted with flour and roll it to a thickness of 1/2 cm
Using a round cutter cut the dough to round shapes and set aside.
Remould the remaining dough and roll again to cut more pieces.
Deep fry the mandazis until golden brown on both sides then set aside to cool.
Enjoy your them plain or dust with icing sugar.
